At AISM, we use assessments to help us focus on the gaps - and how to close them. A range of formative and summative tests are provided, benchmarked against international standards through the International Schools Assessment (ISA), used by 90,000 students and 400 schools worldwide.

Formative Assessment

Your child will undertake standardised diagnostic assessments to help identify their current level of understanding.

Ongoing Assessment

We close the gaps identified through the formative assessment. The learning and assessment cycle continues through observation, projects, assignments, tests, quizzes and presentations.

Summative Assessment

Class-based assessments will be conducted throughout the year. External examinations include the International Schools Assessment (Years 3 to 10). Standardised diagnostic assessments are completed twice per year to gauge individual academic growth.
